I was reading an old paper when I attended OCAD and was reminded of the brilliance of fellow Canadian Ursala Franklin. I admire her thoughts on Pacifism, strong Quaker beliefs and view that technology is more then just machines… it’s a system and mindset. I think her concept that prescriptive technologies promote a “a culture of compliance.”
For more, you could check out her writings, The Real World of Technology and Pacifism as a Map. I join her in the search for technological practices that advance justice and peace.
There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.
– A.J. Muste quoted in The Ursula Franklin Reader.
